    Thanks, Cogito!

    I’m really excited to have won, especially after reading the competition and knowing I was up against some fantastic stories. I think everyone is a winner though, because now we all have one more story to share with the world.

    A special thanks to Daniel for hosting this awesome contest. Without competitions like this, we starving writers would be faced with high entry fees. So I admire the fact that Daniel provided everything for our benefit.

    Also, many thanks to those who voted for my entry. I love entertaining people through my writing, and to see it working makes me really, really happy!

    Best,
    C. P.

    I enjoyed your story, casperpearl. Unfortunately, I don't think I was able to vote (or perhaps couldn't figure out how it was supposed to work), but I would have voted for yours. Congratulations. I hope to read many more of your pieces in the future here.

    That's because the contest was over months before you joined.
